Folks, I'm looking for some software for my son. He's learning guitar and I'm looking for something that will slow down the songs he likes without changing the pitch. Are any of you aware of something that might help him? TIA
I don't see the point of asking a question that can be easily found online.Thanks. Yeah, I found that out. Don't see the point of a forum if the answers are to use google.
Theres a bunch actually.
The "amazing slow downer" app has had a long run of popularity.
There are many others you may want to try. A search would actually give a pretty big list of options.
I would suggest starting with something simple to use, narrowly targeted toward the purpose would be a better place to start than a broader tool that also does the slow down thing.
But everyones needs and preferences vary, and sometimes we have to explore to learn what suits us.
Reaper will allow you to import mp3 or wav files and loop and slow them down, as well as making it easy to record (with a usb interface) multiple parts, add midi drums, etc. It's a full blown DAW, with an indefinite free trial, but only $60 to purchase (well worth it really).
A few other thoughts-Reaper is the best. I've been using it for a decade at least. I can do just about anything in it but my son isn't going to take the time to learn it until he can play well enough to be interested in recording. He'll lose interest. I've looked at a few free ones and some that aren't. Transcribe! and Song Surgeon look pretty good as does Music Speed Changer which he can use on his laptop and his phone plus it's free. But Transcribe! and Song Surgeon will both show the key and chords which would help him a good bit.
